4 weeks from 40... skate on!


At first, I tried to play on a sense of motion with this photo of me on my son's skateboard, but I quickly abandoned that idea. Here I was, 4 weeks from 40 years old, and I was flying around the 'hood like I did at 13. I wanted to play on the sense of rebellion, grunge and stardom I felt at that moment.

I used a graffiti wall texture over my photograph with a low opacity. I copied and masked it with each star and added a defined drop shadow.

I love how it turned out! Sadly, I broke my hand 5 months later when I hit a rock and went flying, landing hard on my hands. But you'd never know it from this photo.
